for maintaining such an excellent website. Here are some photos
of "Colonel Mustard." She's a 2004 55.5 cm Curt built Rivendell
All-Rounder built around 26" wheels. The build has changed a bit
over the past few years as my whims see fit. Her components are
a typical mishmash of old and new, high and low tech: TA Cyclotouriste
crank, Phil BB and freewheel hub, Suntour Cyclone rear mech, Campy
friction bar end shifters, Paul touring cantilevers (a joy to set
up and oh! so solid,) Berthoud fenders, Nitto racks. I tend to switch
out the bags and racks depending on the nature of my excursions.
really love this bike. It fits like a glove and performs like a
champ. I have an old Trek fixie for commuting and I use the Colonel
for just about everything else: day rides, urban exploring, ex-urban
wanderings, overnight camp outs and longer tours. She has never
failed to live up to her "all-round" billing.
again for the great site.
